The vision and focus of the school remain on the education of girl children particularly from the poor background, thereby empowering their future lives and raising the standard of living of their family. Education should be well balanced by a combination of culture, values, curriculum, life skills, health, and spirituality.
Our mission is to create cultured, self-dependent disciplined, and responsible citizens of the country thereby the Children’s self-growth also contributes to the Country’s growth. Each soul is potentially divine. And our education is to make that divinity manifest to the maximum extent leading to excellent achievements in various fields of development. Thereby this recipe of culture, discipline, academic training, etc leads to the development of not only successful Doctors, Engineers, Teachers, etc, but also responsible citizens and valuable human beings. This in turn contributes to the growth of oneself as well as to the growth of their family, society, country, and the world in all.
